Five of South Africa's football stadiums underwent major renovations for 2010: Soccer City and Ellis Park in Johannesburg, Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria, the Royal Bafokeng stadium in Rustenburg in North West province, and Vodacom Park in Bloemfontein in the Free State.

New stadiums were built at Mbombela in Mpumalanga and in the Nelson Mandela Metro in the Eastern Cape. Peter Mokaba stadium in Polokwane in Limpopo was rebuilt, as was Kings Park stadium in Durban and Cape Town's Green Point stadium.

Kings Park (Moses Mabhida Stadium, originally called the King Senzangakhona Stadium) and Green Point stadium became completely new multi-sport facilities, Green Point complete with a retractable dome to protect fans and players from the Cape's unpredictable winter weather.
